They have been in use since medieval times, i.e., since the sixteenth century, and are believed to have originated from European countries. In ancient days crystals, glasses and ceramics were used to make chandeliers of different sizes and shapes. Chandeliers generally have metal branches, which fit the light holders. The metal branches are highly decorated with art work and stylish designs. The traditional chandeliers have flower, leaf and creeper designs on the metal branches. But, modern chandeliers have classy and trendy art work. The classification of chandeliers is based on the materials that are used to make them. Most of the chandeliers are white in colour because the lighting in chandeliers is by refraction of light through the crystals and glasses used, but, there are also black chandeliers, which are pretty popular because they portray an exotic look. The various types of chandeliers have been discussed below.
Contemporary Chandeliers - When most people think of modern lighting, they picture recessed spot and accent lights and maybe some track lighting. If they do not consider a hanging lamp or two, the modern decorator may feel as if they moved into an art gallery where all the lighting is bright but far away. A chandelier in the entryway and another over the dining area can bring rich lighting down to people-level and can highlight modern style. Chrome starburst designs and cylindrical designs are both sleek, modern chandelier options.
Another important size consideration is the length. A chandelier should be at least 30 inches above the table that it will hang over. This is the optimum height as it is high enough to leave adequate room to place things under the chandelier and is low enough to provide the desired lighting. Thus, after subtracting 30 inches from the top of the table to the ceiling, and 3-4 inches for the chandelier hook, the space left can be used to decide the length of the chandelier. Once again, you can be a little flexible here. If you usually use very tall centerpieces on your table, you should choose a chandelier that is a little shorter.
Rustic Chandeliers- Many hanging lamps and chandeliers are designed with a more rugged look for today`s single men. Antler chandeliers allow you to bring the hunting lodge home with you. A bent-branch chandelier would go well if you have even one bent-branch chair. Wood beam chandeliers with metal brackets may make you think of medieval castles, but current wood styles offer tailored designs as well as rough-hewn designs.
